Migrants in Catholic schools in Chile: a proposal for an educational model of inclusion
At the beginning of 2018, in Chile, immigrants amounted to 1.2 million people (almost 7% of the population). In the school context, where there isn’t a teacher training on the subject, there are difficulties of integration which lead to racism.
The project takes up the migration challenge aiming to realize a full inclusion of children attending the Catholic primary school in Chile. To do so, the project provides the following phases:
– collection and processing of existing information (end up)
– development of a proposed educational (in progress)
– implementation and evaluation of the model (2020)
– activation of a teacher training, which provides them with information on how to deal with the phenomenon, and a specific intercultural training (2020)
The project aims to realize a full inclusion of foreign children attending the Catholic primary school in Chile. In order to achieve this goal, the project managers are elaborating, testing and validating a specific educational model aimed to the extension and replicability (another goal expected by the project).
The project, funded by the Gravissimum Educationis Foundation, is promoted by three universities under the auspices of the Episcopal Conference of Chile:
Universidad Católica Silva Henríquez
Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile
Universidad Pontificia Universidad Católica del Norte
